Compelling read

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling readDecember 9, 2013
This review is from: Twisted (Kindle Edition)
In “Twisted,” Eva Poznansky tells four poignant tales that force readers out of their mental couches to grope with issues—some mental, some emotional, some psychological, all author-centric in their first-person points of view. The result is a montage of innuendo and metaphor that stretches the mind, forces the reader to question long-held views and see different and exciting possibilities.

Who is Job's wife really? Is she the biblical I Am, come to set Satan straight? If so, heresy? If not, then who—then what? Is the sculptor God from clay's point of view? If so, when, exactly, does She imbue lifeless dirt with passion? If so, why does She relinquish Her creations to the potter's kiln? And who, then, what, then, is the potter?

And so it goes: in each of “Twisted's” short prose pieces, nicely broken up by relevant and moving poetry, Poznansky raises questions then answers them, knowing hers is only one of myriad possibilities, that the breadth of conclusions is limited only by the number of readers.
